The Digital GC: November 14 – 18, 2016

In an ongoing effort to surface and share relevant events, publications, workshops, and opportunities that may be of interest to “The Digital GC” community, GC Digital Initiatives posts regular updates each Monday to our blog.

The Digital GC aggregates information not only about GC Digital Initiatives (GCDI), but also shares ongoing events across the GC, CUNY, and New York City that feature conversations about new scholarly methods enabled through the critical use of digital technologies, about the cultural opportunities and challenges presented by digital technologies, and about the changing shape of scholarly communication and pedagogy in light of the emergence of digital technologies. This includes links to: Events, Workshops, Featured Posts, Resources, News, and Calls for Participation.

If you would like for us to share information about an upcoming event, workshop, or other announcement relevant to the Digital GC community, you can submit your information through the Digital GC Submission Form.
